Well I'll go t'foot of our stairs, I was on the 10.08 to Paddington and now I'm in Magus Perde's drawing room at midnight and Martin rips it up.
Well, so far I am really impressed, the the clarity surprises me, not sure if it is me or the crap hearing I have suffered for a couple of years, but the whole dynamic of this seems to be rebalanced, no pushing Ian to the fore on this mix, the whole range of the band is covered. I think Steve Wilson was saving it up for this one. I've still got a few things to listen too, and I wouldn't want to sound like some gushy fan, I've been critical of stuff when I need to be, but not this one. if you haven't ordered it yet go get it.
Only one listen in and I'm bloody chuffed with it. One good thing to come out of England being out of the World Cup is that I get more time to listen to this.
Sax is still there on APP, I'm reserving tomorrow morning for a full on onslaught of chateau, the new lyrics on the Steve W mix of APP are disconcerting, not necessarily out of place, but it is odd hearing it now after 40 years of hearing it without, it's like walking the same route all your life and then going on a (not unpleasant) detour you didn't plan for. The lyrics don't seem to flow as part of the structure, but that could be the reason why they were left out.
The intro and outro video is without soundtrack and opening white dot, but it is so satisfying to see the ballerina rise again.
Packaging is really nice, same size as the TaaB special edition.
I certainly won't miss voting in next years PROG awards, this has to win awards hands down.
I have no idea why Look at the Animals was not released as a single. Distinctive (and rocking) chorus riff, interesting lyrics. It was my first favorite song of the Chateau cuts.
When I first heard Scenario/Audition/No Rehearsal (20th boxset 1988) I was floored that it was never released. Ian was throwing away masterpieces back then lol.. Some of that stuff is some of my favorite of all Tull.
Just a quick note of thanks on behalf of the Group, to Paul at the Jethro Tull Board for his kind comments and acknowledgment of our contributions to the APP re release. Much appreciated. There's more to come. Darin Cody
I'd like to echo that and express my gratitude to Paul for our past collaborations and my thanks for his congratulations and acknowledgement of our contributions at the board and on the APP re-issue. It was greatly appreciated.
Congratulations for the mention in APP, fantastic, and also to Pat for the brilliant interview with Jane. You guys have worked so hard in providing all JT fans with some amazing memorabilia and lots of other things and I for one appreciate it. You are all Tulltastic………….
Quizz Kid: Well, we tried to spread the love and the word, build bridges, but when you get booted and blocked by twats for no reason it's a bit like the trash taking itself out for collection, good riddance to bad rubbish.
